420 Rock. Two blocks from my front door.

I would tell you where, but then all my neighbors would have to kill me.

Burney Limestone, 20 min. drive 5 min approach

Wait just a god damn second... Burney has Limestone??? Jesus I gots to find me that nor cal guidebook and start pocking my nose around up yonder.



100 yards to the Nut Tree Boulders. OK, maybe 100 yards is an exaggeration, probably 75 :P



You got a name for that boulder Rough? Was just up there the other day and wondering.


I'm with Rough, accept I'm about 324 yards from the boulders. At least that's what the range finder on my spotting scope says.

A crag is not one boulder. A crag is also not a climbing wall in your living room.

Crag n. A steep rugged rock projecting upward or outward.
Middle English, from Welsh craig or Scottish Gaelic creagh.
Derived from Celtic origin; related to old Welsh creik rock. First known use 14th century.

So boulders, yes!
Climbing wall, not so much.

You did not post the whole wiki entry...so no.


Crag may refer to:
A steep rugged mass of rock projecting upward or outward, especially a cliff or vertical rock exposure in the north of England or in Scotland (Irish: creag, Scottish Gaelic: creag, Welsh: craig).
A rock-climbers' term for a cliff or group of cliffs, in any location, which is or may be suitable for climbing

My stairs are suitable for climbing.
So no.... ;)


Seriously though, a boulder is not a crag.

Crag n. A steep rugged rock projecting upward or outward.

So, in the case of that choss posted, yes. That rock Sodamanizer is climbing was NEVER a boulder. It is a piece of (correct me if I'm wrong) obducted ophiolite... i.e. bedrock choss.

Where ever I go? I take my Craeg with me.

And if you look up the meaning to that name you'll see it means 'rock.'
